Victoria, British Columbia Canada has never seen the likes of me! Will and I set off on our adventure to Victoria on Tuesday morning. The weatherman “promised” clear skies and 0% chance of rain … so, there we were in Victoria and, yes, there were raindrops falling all around. We figured that we might as well look around have see what was in The Empress Hotel. We had decided that it might be fun to have High Tea at the…

They say: You never get a second chance to make a first impression; logically, I can say that this is true. However, sometimes things deserve a second look, a second impression. “When we make art, we try to make something that we never leave behind.

I love this place. It reminds me so much of…

I see you!

Usually, one of the first things that I do when I get a new camera is to turn off bells and whistles and make it a “plain” camera. I’m rather divided sometimes though, because as a software developer I really like computer “stuff”, including new technologies. As a photographer, I grew up with film and plain cameras that you had to load film, do all of your own focusing, understand how meters work, etc. One of the features that I…

The other day, I took the D700 out for a stroll with just the camera and a 50 mm lens. After having used a M43 for just over a year, man that thing felt like a brick! LOL – I must admit, though, I did like hearing the slap of the mirror, but it is a heavy beast.
